Sharon Gless - Debbie from Queer As Folk

Two time Emmy award and Golden Globe award winning Sharon Gless stopped by to chat to Adz and Ginni from The Hump Day Crew. She is probably best known for her role as Sgt. Christine Cagney on the 1980's cop show Cagney and Lacey but we love her as Debbie Novotny from Queer As Folk.

Gless started out working as a secretary for advertising agencies and film companies before she designed to sign a contract with Universal in 1974.

We found out that she generally doesn't tend to wear blue to dinner parties and that she turns a fabulous 66 on Sunday. She took time out of a dinner party to come chat to Ginni and Adz - she was an absolute delight to chat to and she still is just as passionate about human rights (in particular gay rights and womens rights). It was an honor to chat to one of the greats in World Film and Television - we hope you enjoy her company as much as we did.

There is nothing like a Dame! This was the best interview of all. So many memorable quotes, especially about the casting and her favorite scene. Hope you can get Gale, Randy, Robert and Harris soon. Thanks!

Thank you so much for all those wonderful interviews with the QaF cast. It's still, by far, my all-time favorite show. I agree with Sharon when she said that the cast were picked from a higher place. I truly believe that. Those people were the most amazing actors I've ever seen in my life and they really deserve all the best in life. I would also like to point out that I rarely like the interviewers and the questions asked but those two were just perfect and I really enjoyed listening to them as much as the interviewees themselves. So, well done! It was very much appreciated. Thank you.
